Repairing machinery with eFil-HT
Sometimes the simplest repairs can become a real headache if we do not find the right parts. Today's case is one of these.
When one of our users broke the belt of his electric sander he thought that he would only have to request a new belt and change it. But it could not be like that since it was an old sander, already discontinued and could not find spare parts for it. Thankfully, I had knowledge of CAD design , a 3D printer and a suitable filament for the task, our flexible eFil filament .
In other circumstances he would have had to get rid of the machine and acquire a new model . This is one of the examples that demonstrates the practicality of 3D printing even at the most amateur levels.
The sander has been working with the same belt for months now, because eFil has a high resistance to abrasion , which makes it perfect for this type of application. Being a filament that is worth as much for aesthetic purposes as for practical purposes.
We see ourselves printing.
